Static Poem by Magic Box

A deep sigh!
The crawling time spits back,
Eyes wither, crumbles between,
The endless memories,
Played over and over!
And the despicable sight,
Of a life, like a bound book,
And its loosen bind!
Pages flying around aimless,
The perfect chaos,
To ponder in and out,
I hear an unknown sparrow sing,
For life that has not lost,
My hands are empty!
My voice is broken!
My mind is torn!
Between my dreams and goals,
Between my faith and state
Between my self and face!
I'm sorry!

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
If I had a choice I wouldn't!

    And the brave is one who firmly has power to remove the gap b/w abstract and concrete.
    but often it occurs...nicely presented poem of your static feeling :)

    Dear Aswath, if you are again writing any such poems, I will not comment on it..Write some positive or Inspirational poem so that it gives the readers too a great message..You are future leaders of the country, if you sing melancholoy songs what will be the outcome..Please do come with some beautiful poems, so that it spread the light of wisdom..Am sorry, if am too harsh in my comments..

    .... And yet another death poem is in your mind! Be dynamic Aswath for a little longer and go for a subdued outlook at these fantasised woes queuing up somewhere. About turn! (Report) Reply

    lost in decission... which ice cream, chocalate or vanilla.
    when you come to the cliff ... three things...
    you can turn back, leap, or remain static. (Report) Reply

    I hear an unknown sparrow sing,
    For life that has not lost, ...

    this is a good sign in a bleak least a sparrow sings, at least there is some life that is not lost!
    Stasis is defined as a state of stability in which all forces are equal and opposing, therefore they cancel out each is not all negative...but the post script is noteworthy! ! ! (Report) Reply
